Earlier today, we passed along the interesting news that Samsung plans on unveiling its 2019 flagship phone in January. The manufacturer wants to leave some room for consumers to digest the Samsung Galaxy S10 and have room left over for dessert. And by dessert, we mean the the foldable Samsung Galaxy X (or whatever moniker the company chooses). Now, a report out of South Korea gives us some ideas about what features could be found on the Galaxy S10 and, we assume, the Galaxy S10+.
The report points out that Samsung has failed for two years with its attempts to include an in-display fingerprint …
Samsung is trying to outmaneuver the competition each year by launch its flagship smartphones earlier than usual. Both the Galaxy S9 and Note 8 came a couple of weeks earlier than its predecessors, but the Galaxy S10 may give a new meaning to the word “earlier.”
It appears that Samsung has given the green light to its “foldable smartphone” project and has decided that the best release window for the device would be the one that coincides with the Galaxy S10’s announcement.
Because Samsung doesn’t want the Galaxy S10 or its upcoming foldable smartphone to steal each others spotlight, …
It’s not the first time we are hearing that Samsung is working on a TrueDepth camera competitor to rival Apple’s Face ID and Animoji features, but now we have a device where it will eventually be planted – none other than the Galaxy S10. This one is shaping up to be a crazy handset, with a 7nm chipset, 5G connectivity, in-display finger scanner, and whatever else Samsung throws at it that will stick.
Samsung just tooled up for mass production of the chipsets that will go into the Galaxy S10 and Note 10, as it is breaking ground on a brand new foundry this week, tasked with making the plunge all the way down to the 7nm production node. The factory costs $5.6 billion, yet Samsung has further expansion plans about it, since the 7nm process will be with us for at least a few years going forward.
Qualcomm just took to the airwaves, and issued no less than 11 press releases this morning, but one of it caught our particular attention, as it is going directly in future flagship smartphones.
Yesterday, Qualcomm came out of the blue with the first chipset made on the groundbreaking 7nm process, but this one was a wireless modem, the X24, which will allow phones equipped with it to reach 2 Gbps 4G LTE download speeds.
Despite its spats with Apple, and the subsequent loss of one of its biggest clients to Intel, Qualcomm remains the top dog when it comes to cellular connectivity, and it just announced the first wireless modem that can hit 2 Gbps 4G LTE downloads, the X24, and the first chip announced to use the 7nm production process, ready to go into “commercial devices” by year’s end.
